Should I be wary of buying a leasehold house?

Should I buy a property with a short lease?

Could the sale of a leasehold property be delayed?

Yes. The conveyancing for selling a leasehold house or flat can result in long delays.

The buyer's conveyancer will want to see these documents, like a copy of buildings insurance for the common parts of the property and three years' filed accounts for the property management. Typically, delays are due to the time required by your solicitor to get these documents together.

Your solicitor should start this process as soon as possible, as these details could take several weeks to collect if the agent responsible for managing the property is slow or difficult to contact.

Will I need a solicitor in order to transfer equity in my Desborough property?

A 'transfer of equity' will be required if the ownership structure of the Desborough property needs to be changed, or if the property is being given (gifted) to a child or relative. The legal process of transferring equity is different to the purchase or sale of the whole property. Your conveyancing solicitors can carry out the legal work for you for a guaranteed fixed fee. If you intend to remortgage at the same time as the transfer, we can complete the remortgage legal work in parallel.
